I love handprint crafts! They are always so cute and they capture the size of my children’s hands, which are growing so quickly! Today I’m sharing with you a fun heart-shaped Valentine’s craft with the “You Make My Heart Flutter” phrase on it.
Valentine Craft Materials
Here’s what you need for this Valentine craft:
- washable paint
- construction paper
- googly eyes
- pipe cleaners
Directions for the Valentine Handprint Craft
First, cut two large hearts out of construction paper. You can use any color of paper.
Next, paint your child’s hand with washable paint and stamp it onto both hearts. I recommend placing a bowl of water next to you so your child can wash his hands right away. Make sure you let the paint dry before moving on to the next step.
After it’s dry, glue the two handprint hearts together.
Cut out a long oval for the butterfly’s body. Then write the words “You make my heart flutter” on it.
Glue the body in between the two hearts. Cut out a small heart for the head.
Glue on the googly eyes, pipe cleaners, and draw a smile.
Here are some more examples of the craft!
My toddler (2.5 years old) loved making his handprints on the heart wings. 🙂
These would be cute Valentines to pass out or even great for classroom decorations!

Frequently Asked Questions
I do not have a printable for this craft.
Any washable paint will work!
Fold the paper in half. Then draw half a heart along the folded edge of the paper using a pencil. Cut out the half heart and then open up the paper. It should look like a heart!
